Come on, wiki isnt ALL bad. Everything has its fault eh?

Im glad you're all over this one BD. I have to admit that
I had not heard of Sonny until last year sometime. Un-
fuckin-real! Matter of fact, it was a John Hiatt show I
recorded off the TV from 2003-11-16 in Basel, Switzerland
that I ever saw the guy. Of course I was hooked instantly.
I cant find it on youtube at all though. If you want a DVD
you can hit me @ this user name and Ya freekin hoo. Be more
than glad to hook ya up with a copy BD.

I think Healys version of Angel Eyes surpasses Hiatts while
Im rambling.

The last time I had the pleasure to see Hiatt, it was at a
quaint lil theatre in Newark, OH with Lyle Lovett (my 1st
time seeing LL as well, I had NO idea...). My eyes watered
through the entire show. Better than this, but you get the idea~

Two things that just hit me:
I found my first J Hiatt shirt that is 22 years old and
that we got away with a long thread that isnt about the
Grateful Dead. ooooooops.

Well, according to the all-seeing, all-knowing wikipedia, Keltner has worked with Jerry Garcia, so we're good.

Couldn't find anything on where or when though ...

It’s nice to take a vacation once in a while because this gives you physical and mental refreshment. I can still remember my unforgettable experience when I was in Bantayan Island. The place was indescribable. The surroundings were rare, pleasant to your soul.

I've always been a big fan of John Hiatt's, too. His band, with Sonny Landreth, was one of the best shows I've ever seen; the solo shows are good, too.

It's all in the songs he writes. About two-thirds of them are brilliant, but some not so, making his albums a bit uneven sometimes.

A favourite album? "Bring the Family", which has much the same lineup as Little Village. A favourite "hidden gem"? The song "You May Already Be A Winner"; can't find a link to it.

Lyle really is wonderful - get Joshua Judges Ruth if you haven't already
